      Against unk. I would rather fold this. One should have at least a small sample of them before calling this loose :D IF ye were deeper I could see myself calling this.

      yeah, i really like defending these suited mid-connectors vs 3bet ip, but not really vs an unknown... u have to have at least some info on his leaks/how he plays postflop...

      fold is therefore nuts here imo

      Hey Gxtwo,

      In order to defend wide vs 3bets you ideally want a read that villain is 3betting light. Vs unknown, fold preflop.

      Vs an opponent who is 3betting light, defending may be profitable in a vacuum. I'd still usually fold the hand in favour of stronger hands from your range, A9s, TJs, 99, ATo, etc etc.

      Usually you won't need to defend as wide as 67s in order to counter a wide 3better even if it may end up being profitable against some opponents.

      Postflop looks fine.
